Conception Frustrations?

If you're trying to conceive and it's taking longer than you had hoped, what frustrations are you running into? Is it that just about everyone around you seems to be pregnant? Or, something someone said? Or, is you-know-who (your mom, his mom...) pressuring you or asking when way too often? Does it sometimes feel like TTC is more like Trying to Cope?

TTC= Trying to Cope

Ugh, Trying to Cope is more like it. I have all but 2 married friends my age that are not pregnant or already have kids. It's awful. I have felt so isolated lately especially since one of my best friends is being induced tomorrow w/ her SECOND baby and she just turned 24 in November. I'll be 25 in Feb. Me & my husband have just started on this journey and in fact, the last day i took birth control was Oct. 16th. I figured it would happen the very first time; course i also figure if we weren't trying and i missed a pill i would probably end up pregnant but now that we're trying it hasn't happened yet. I know God has plan for us, it's just hard "coping" when everyone else seems to be doing fine. Ugh, and the MIL is soo puttin on the pressure.

Trying to....2

To CMLCLM22, I can completely relate to you. We are in the same boat, only have been trying much longer. I will be 30 in June and it's very frustrating. We don't have any children yet. I have had 2 miscarriages and I am so tired of the questions "so when are you guys going to have children" or "so have they found what's wrong!?" It's so rude. Most of the people know we want children so you'd think they would get a clue. I can sympathize with your feelings of other people who aren't even trying to get pregnant - it's almost heart breaking and seems so unfair! Each day I tell myself, God has a plan for us and I am not going to rush it. My Husband keeps saying we just need to quit our jobs, get knee-deep in debt, maybe go on welfare and then we'll probably get pregnant!!! :-)

I found out there is such a thing called mental pregnancy, its when u want it really bad and u think u are but really not. Hopefully it will happen this month for me.. good luck and god bless all!

I'm trying!

I am 27 and my husband is 32 and has 2 sons, 14 & 11, which we have full custody of. We have been married for 6 years and everyone keeps asking if we are going to have one together. I don't want to say "I don't know!" anymore. It is close to the holidays and relatives keep asking! I don't just want to blurt out "WE ARE TRYING!" but I get so frustrated. I have been off the pill for 6 months and nothing, not even a day late. I am finally ready for a child of my own and I am getting sick of people saying "It was an accident" or "It was a surprise, we weren't trying!" His ex-wife has had 2 accidents in 2 years and I can't even get pregnant on purpose. What do you tell people without breaking down and telling them how it is?

ok thanx buh-bye

Last year I had a miscarriage. Prior to that, I had believed that I wouldn't be able to get pregnant, because I have a severe bicornuate uterus. My husband and I were already looking at adoption options. But my new gynecologist told me that even though I have a higher chance of having a high-risk pregnancy, I should be able to carry a child to near-term.

So, we decided to give it a try. To find out that I probably have luteal phase defect and possibly low progesterone. The doctor is starting me on Clomid next cycle.

My biggest problem is a former friend. She is married to my husband's best friend and she had fertility issues herself. We haven't been friends for years, her fertility issues were completely different than mine (she has no problem getting pregnant, she has a problem maintaining a pregnancy).

Ever since my miscarriage, she has acted like we are two peas in a pod, and keeps giving me unsolicited advice. She only wants to talk to me when I am discussing my fertility problems, we have nothing else in common any more to discuss. And I really don't care that drinking green tea helped her get pregnant or she has a friend of a friend who took this vitamin or that drug. I know that she thinks she is the fertility expert, but I don't want her advice. I have a doctor. I am a paramedic with access to tons of medical resources. And I have better friends who have done far more for me over the years, regardless of what was going on with my uterus.

Ugh. I can't take it any more!!!! If it wasn't for my husband's friendship, I would seriously go off on her!

still trying!

I agree, we first got pregnant on our second try! Unfortunately, I had a miscarraige at about 3 months....its been about 4 months since then and we have been calculating my ovulation and trying again and seems to be taking soooo long! Every time that I get my period, its a huge disappointment. Everyone that I see is pregnant! My cousin had a miscarraige as well and was pregnant with her oldest, 4 weeks later! I also ran into two old friends recently, one is nine months along now and told me that she had lost her first, when she was about two months and was pregnant again the next month...and the other friend had the same thing and now has a seven week old little boy...when will this happen for us?!
